How to clutch a wheelie?

I just got a oldschool cbr f2 and turing it to a streetfighter, and I know how to pop a 1st gear wheelie (power) but I'm still learning the 2nd gear clutch and ride... Do I need to get the 520 rear or I'm good with the stock. Any advise?? Thanks

Hey also I heard about the 520 sprocket or something like that. Do I need to change out my stock chain?

Plus 1, The stock chain and sprocket is better strenght wize. You might want to go up a couple of teeth in the rear later.

the 520 arent that great seems you tear up the sprockets quick. the hp or torque u gain from the less rotating mass i don't believe is enough to make a diference when you wheelie.

DUMP the clutch. Use two fingers and dont look at the guages. It shouldnt be hard to bring up the front end.

if you convert to 520, at least get hard anodized sprockets
cheap sprockets will always wear more quickly

At the very end of the video, he talks about back break, kinda adds it in as an extra, something thats not very important:laughing6
